    After Duffus McClutski's wife made him give up his used tea bag collection, Duffus decided to start collecting fridge magnets. Eventually, he had enough to cover the entire fridge, much to his wife's dismay. After several failed attempts to get rid of them, she finally gave up until one day, their fridge broke down. They looked at dozens of fridges, but finally settled on a top-of-the-line stainless steel model with two doors, icemaker and the works. Duffus was reluctant to spend so much on a fridge till his wife told him to imagine how great his fridge magnets would look on it. That was all the motivation he needed, but once the fridge was in, he soon realized his wife had put one over on him, and he would only be able to imagine his collection on the fridge from now on.
    But why, what had she done?

    Stainless steel is not magnetic. Our fridge is painted to look like stainless steel so magnets still stick to it. Sounds like his wife was smarter than he is.

    Magnetic permeability is the ability of a material to carry magnetism, indicated by the degree to which it is attracted to a magnet. All stainless steels, with the exception of the austenitic group, are strongly attracted to a magnet.
